The tissue paper files...

At the start of our fortnight off school together, the children and I began to make plans about what we would like to do with our days....

One of those discussions resulted in us deciding that we would be in need of industrial quantities of tissue paper.

So we went to the shops....and bought a rainbow of papers....


....shown here.....

I am quite in love with photographing these gorgeous colours that look so divine and different with every angle or shape into which they are bent.

We finished our project today....it has taken hours and hours of cutting, gluing, scrunching and peeling...and our tissue paper is nearly all used up. The children have worked so hard....and much as I love the neat and orderliness of the stack that is shown here, the tissue paper looks even nicer in its new form: I will show you what they have made in my next post.

Sorry for the brevity this week - I am high on pictures and low on words....I wonder where I've put them...

Wishing you all lovely weekends. x

  5. What a beautiful range of colours - tissue paper always looks so festive! Enjoy the slower pace over the next two weeks, and I hope you and your children have plenty of time to be creative. Can't wait to see the finished project!

  6. Gorgeous happy colours :) I'm looking forward to seeing what you have all made. We just had a week of inside activities due to the kids being a bit sick (too sick to go out, but not sick enough to not get bored being stuck at home). The biggest hit was the humungous cave we built out of the couch, the dining chairs, and loads of pillows, sheets and quilts. Amazing how long it kept them occupied and happy for! But I do love tissue paper activities, so now I'm waiting with baited breath (it's nice having things like this ready to pull out of my sleeve when the need or opportunity arises). Cheers, Bec.
